progress-reporter 1.4

Progress Reporter

This library provides a simple interface to register different workloads and
visualize their progress with either a plain text progress bar or a jupyter
widget, depending on the current environment.

It optionally depends on Jupyter widgets to draw nice progress bars in the interactive
Jupyter notebook environment.


with pip::

pip install progress_reporter

If you use IPython/Jupyter, you are strongly encourage to also install the jupyter widgets::

pip install ipywidgets


Image you have a class doing some heavy calculations, which are split into several
jobs/tasks/threads etc.

In order to visualize the progress, one just needs to derive the worker class from
progress_reporter.ProgressReporter and invoke the **_progress_register** method
to tell the reporter how many pieces of work have to be done. Then the reporter
is instructed by **_progress_update(n)** how many of pieces of work have been

Note that these are "private" to use this class as a mixin class and not polute the
public interface.

.. code:: python

from progress_reporter import ProgressReporter
import time

class ExampleWorker(ProgressReporter):
def __init__(self, n_jobs=100):
self.n_jobs = n_jobs
""" register the amount of work with the given description """
self._progress_register(n_jobs, description='Dispatching jobs')

def work(self):
""" do some fake work (sleep) and update the progress via the reporter
for job in (lambda: time.sleep(0.1) for _ in range(self.n_jobs)):
# indicate we've finished one job, to update the progress bar

It also supports multi-stage sequential work loads by setting the parameter **stage**.
This is just the dictionary key to the underlying process:

.. code:: python

class MultiStageWorker(ProgressReporter):
def __init__(self, n_jobs_init, n_jobs):
self.n_jobs_init = n_jobs_init
self.n_jobs = n_jobs
""" register an expensive initialization routine """
self._progress_register(self.n_jobs_init, description='initializing', stage=0)
""" register the main computation """
self._progress_register(self.n_jobs, description='main computation', stage=1)

def work(self):
""" do the initialization """
for job in (lambda: time.sleep(0.1) for _ in range(self.n_jobs_init)):
self._progress_update(1, stage=0)

""" perform the next stage of the algorithm """
for job in (lambda: time.sleep(0.2) for _ in range(self.n_jobs)):
self._progress_update(1, stage=1)

Since version 2.0 there is also a version of the this class suitable for compositions. Note that

.. code:: python
from progress_reporter import ProgressReporter_

class Estimator(object):
def fit(self, X, y=None):
pg = ProgressReporter_()
pg.register(100, description='work')
with pg.context(): # ensure progress bars are closed if an exception occurs.
